The Nexus 4 Wireless Charger that was first teased when thephone was first launched back in November has finally appeared as an accessory on Google Play. Although the orb is now on the Australian Google Play site you still cannot place an order for it with the status listed as ‘This device is not for sale at this time’. In the US the story is a little different where they are able to place an order for up to five of the devices at $59.99 each and presumably a $19.99 shipping fee similar to what is imposed on the Nexus devices and the Nexus 4 Bumper here.
The listing for the Orb describes it as a QI inductive charger with an angled surface that provides easy visibility of your phone while charging, with no ‘clunky’ add-ons required for the wireless charging. Technical specs are a 5V DC/1.8A in and 5V DC/ 1.0A out with a total charging time of 4 hours. A slight discrepancy in the output voltage with the standard wall charger supplied with the Nexus 4 which outputs 5V DC/1.2A.
Whilst not available to order yet it’s a good sign that this has gone on sale elsewhere and hopefully it should be avaialable for sale here in Australia shortly.
